Welcome, I think you have to have 5 posts until you can post photos and links?

Do you know what colour it was before it was resprayed? That might help and an approximate age?

There were several different Ace's from Raleigh over quite a few years, there was the Ace, the Record Ace, the Road Ace that I can remember and there may have been more, of those three some of the Record Aces were 531 but the Ace itself was a low end model
